Wisdom For Each Day – November 21, 2014

How does God define success?  His measure is very different from the world’s measure, and it can be summed up in one sentence: Success in God’s eyes is faithfulness to His calling.  Paul was a failure in the world’s eyes – but not to God.  Even Jesus was a failure as far as most people were concerned, but “he was faithful to the one who appointed him” – and that is all that mattered.

What is your definition of success?  Is it the same as God’s – and are you pursuing it?

Therefore, holy brothers, who share in the heavenly calling, fix your thoughts on Jesus….  He was faithful to the one who appointed him.

Hebrews 3:1-2
